Hormones On Your Mind? The Link Between Hormones and National Mental Health Month
May is National Mental Health Month, an important time to gain deeper awareness of mental health issues in those around us as well as ourselves. Many of us understand the importance of keeping our mental health in check, but we may not know the crucial way in which hormones play a role.
Hormone Imbalance and Mental Health
When they’re balanced, your hormones play a starring role in an active and low-stress lifestyle, working with you to keep you feeling your best. When they’re imbalanced, they can really wreak havoc on your daily life, increasing feelings of anxiety, depression and more.
You may not consider a hormone imbalance when you first decide to get help for a mental health disorder. This can be a mistake, not only because you’re not treating the root cause of your symptoms, but also because bringing your hormones back to their balanced state can be done naturally and can get your whole body feeling its best.
Signs of a Hormone Imbalance
At MedStudio, we specialize in hormonal changes, so in honor of National Mental Health Month, here are some mental health symptoms that could mean you have a hormone imbalance:
- Depressed mood
- Decreased sex drive
- Brain fog
- Mood changes
- Difficulty focusing
These symptoms could be caused by a variety of hormonal imbalances, and can arise when your body is going through changes like perimenopause and menopause.
